Quadrophenia might be my favorite Who album. Very nice.

As far as a record player is concerned, just get yourself to the local used record store. If ya don't got one nearby, check on ebay. I'm sure there's many for a cheap price.

Hey Jammiin; like that one, BUT curious since you mention it...I have always ranked 'Who's Next' as one of the top ten albums of all time...your thoughts?

Who's Next had more radio play but Quadrophenia was the better album. It really shows the genius of how Townsend would put together many themes into an album. I was lucky to catch the Who playing the whole album on one of their last tours (perhaps one of their many retirement tours?) Cant remember when, perhaps '96 or '97.

I wouldn't know about the play time, but the musicians I hung out with in the early 70s were just blown away by Who's Next; I liked it, but am not qualified to judge in terms of muscianship...they were going ga-ga over it.

They liked Quad, but some how argued for the muscianship (? whatever that means) of Next being superior...

Thanks for the feedback guys!

this pretty much sums up how I feel. Who's Next is a fine collections of songs, but as an album, Quadrophenia is more complete and satisfying.

I always prefered Entwistle's bass over Townsend's guitar work. Who's Next is in my top 10 albums of alltime as well.

Thanks Everybody

Target had record players around x-mas time. i hope this will motivate me to get one but i don't know. I am probably as bad a procrastinator as Garcia was known to be. I 've got what's left of my own collection sitting around here, sold most all the Dead to go on Europe 90 tour. For right now I am just getting goofy checking out the great artwork on the covers.

Hi HiRoller

If we got our records together they would have a fine time together. i have our had a bunch of those on your list. I like that you got the Kinks on there, those fuckers never cross the channel anymore.

I also like the old Ac/Dc. I just saw a You-tube of Bon Scott doing Baby Please Don't Go in a school girl outfit, Probably the scariest looking cross dressing rock star ever. I would never let a virgin I cared about within a mile of that dude. I liked the whole Back in Black thing but it is kids stuff compared to how Ac/dc used to bring it

The Houses of the Holy is wat cool, Zeppelin took heat for the cover. Imagine they were touring America for 5 years having sex with anything that came back to the hotel and they get heat for a PG album cover. I liked physical Graffiti, With all the windows and some of the best jams ever on an album- In my time of dying, want nobody to moan all I want you to do is take my body home...
